Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

A very long day, our weekend guests  had just left and I really didn’t feel like turning around and making supper.  Where’s my glass of wine and foot stool?  I’ll just sit here while someone cooks. No offers? No, don’t get up, I take care of it (me walking toward the kitchen). This will have to be a ‘shop my pantry’ meal. I found one head of broccoli in the refrigerator wanting some attention. There was also a can of…

LAVENDER INFUSED LEMONADE

LAVENDER INFUSED LEMONADE

So, I tried something new yesterday.  Since the weather has been so hot and very dry I’ve been craving lemonade.  Fresh homemade lemonade.  And then my brother-in-law who  recently retired and with his wife, have become homesteaders creating a bee and lavender farm, talked about all the wonderful uses for lavender. We inherited a wonderfully diverse perennial garden from the previous owner of our little home by the sea with four thriving lavender plants, so I got busy harvesting a…

MAY ROUND-UP

MAY ROUND-UP

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. Simply click on the caption of each image for the recipe link. First way at…

EASY PRESERVED LEMONS

EASY PRESERVED LEMONS

Have you ever tried using preserved lemons in your cooking?  They add such a wonderful extra ‘something’ to a dish but sometimes they can be quite pricey to purchase.  I’ve made them myself with success (my recipe here) but they take several weeks to cure properly.  Not always practical.  Well, I now have a way for you to have them ready in about three hours of sitting time.  Make them in the morning.  Have them ready to spice up that…

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH

I have a super easy and quick two for one recipe post for you today, my Galley Peeps.  In truth it’s actually three because I added my recipe for gravy mix which comes in handy if you don’t have real chicken stock on hand.  Now that we are off-season country dwellers, I have become very conscious of supporting local enterprises.  My latest find is ordering vegetables and meats every two weeks from a nearby farm.    They send a list…

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

Time to add a little heat to the galley today.  Another chilly rainy day  and I have a good book to curl up with.  No time to be messing around with time consuming meals. Six chicken thighs and a handful of vegetables, some olives and lemon for a Mediterranean flair and we had a tasty meal in a little over one-half hour. Being the frugal Galley Kat that I am, I shredded the remaining two thighs, dumped them back into…
